BlackBerry Z3 With 5-Inch qHD Display Launched at Rs. 15,990



Canadian smartphone manufacturer has launched its recently unveiled large-screen smartphone in India, the BlackBerry Z3, priced at Rs. 15,990. The BB10 OS-based smartphone will be available to pre-order from Flipkart, The Mobile Store, and BlackBerry stores from Wednesday, and go on sale from July 2.

The BlackBerry Z3 is the first phone to be launched by BlackBerry since new CEO John Chen took the helm late last year. A special pre-order price of Rs. 14,990 is being offered by Flipkart and The Mobile Store.

The Z3 runs BlackBerry 10 OS (version 10.2.1) and features a 5-inch qHD (540x960 pixels) display offering an aspect ratio of 16:9. It is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8230) processor with 1.5GB of RAM.

BlackBerry's Z3 sports a 5-megapixel autofocus rear camera and also houses a 1.1-megapixel fixed-focus front-facing camera. The smartphone includes 8GB of inbuilt storage, which can be expanded up to 32GB via microSD card. 

The smartphone packs a 2500mAh battery, which is rated to deliver up to 15.5 hours talk time and up to 384 hours of standby time. Connectivity options on the BlackBerry Z3 include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G, GPS, NFC and Micro-USB.

The BlackBerry Z3 smartphone also comes preloaded with some BlackBerry services such as BlackBerry Hub, BBM, Time Shift, Story Maker camera features, and BB10 browser.

The Z3 was initially announced in Indonesia and is one of the first devices being made with FIH Mobile Ltd, a unit of the Taiwanese Foxconn Technology Group best known for building devices such as the Apple iPad and iPhone. 

The smartphone was made available for the Indonesian market starting in mid-May, and was priced less than $200 (roughly Rs. 12,000).

BlackBerry confirms Passport phone for September launch



BlackBerry has confirmed the recently-leaked handset code named 'Winder mere' will officially be announced under the name Passport. It will debut at an event in London this September.
Following its quarterly earnings report, during which it announced a return to profit of sorts, BlackBerry CEO John Chen confirmed that the short and wide-set device currently doing the rounds is the real deal.
Naturally, as Crack Berry reports, the device will be named after its passport-like dimensions. According to the presentation, the Blackberry Passport will feature a 4.5-inch 1440 x 1440 display that's as square as an Instagram photo.
The Passport will be a wide 3.18-inches, which is even wider than the pocket-busting 3.12-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 3. An accompanying photo shows the handset will have BlackBerry's stoutest keyboard yet featuring only three rows of physical buttons. The Passport also appeared along two other handsets named the Z3 and Classic.
Internally, the Passport is said to be packing a quad-core Snapdragon MSM8974 processor backed by an Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The phone will also supposedly be powered by a 3,450mAh battery.

Some juice left in the 'Berry?

Asidea new, albeit slightly odd smartphone, there was more good news for BlackBerry fans after seemingly years of gloom-laden financial reports.
BlackBerry surprised the bean counters on Wall Street by posting a small quarterly profit.
Waterloo managed to earn a net income $23 million (about £13.5m, AU24.5m) in the three months ending May 31, although after adjustments the loss was $60 million (about £35.2m, AU$63.9m).
The turnaround in fortunes, which resulted in a 10% share rise on Thursday, comes as BlackBerry continues to cut costs and moves awaythe business of selling hardware to consumers and towards a services-centric operation.
Fifty-four percent of its $966 million ( about £566m, AU$1.02bn) revenue in the quarter camesuch services, while only 39% camethe sales of 2.6 million BlackBerry phones, down steeply 3.4 million this time last year....
